What gives us the right to treat animals so badly?

At least 1.6 trillion wild animals are killed and suffer through people’s actions every year. More than 70 billion farm animals are consumed annually. Most are cruelly confined to industrial, low welfare systems.

It's time to change the way the world works and end animal cruelty and suffering. Forever. 

Does the life of an animal mean nothing at all?

Animals cannot tell their stories of suffering. Together, we must be their voice.

We can end this by loudly calling out cruelty, and influencing governments and businesses to change their practices.

Together, we can give all animals a life worth living.

We are World Animal Protection. We exist to end animal cruelty. But we can’t do it alone.
